Nationwide Appliance Repairs helping to cut down environmental pollution in Australia

Recycling Old Appliances For a Pollution Free Environment in Australia

Appliance repairs company Nationwide Appliance Repairs is helping to cut down on Australia’s environmental pollution as it saves thousands of old appliances from the rubbish tip.

The issue of waste disposal is becoming an increasingly difficult one to solve for governments around the world, as landfills become full and the sea fills with plastic and hazardous waste. 

Kitchen appliances are a particular headache for environmental authorities, as they do not degrade, and often contain hazardous components. Refrigerators and air conditioners, for example, may contain mercury and refrigerants that may harm wildlife, groundwater and plant life. 

Furthermore, fridges and freezers sold before the mid-1990s may contain chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), while air conditioners may contain hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), substances that deplete the ozone layer and contribute to global warming.

According to a study conducted at the University of Manchester in the UK, the typical lifespan of microwaves manufactured today is almost seven years shorter than it was around two decades ago. This is hugely wasteful, as many consumers will simply opt to buy a new appliance and discard the old one, simply compounding the issue of pollution.

Fortunately, Nationwide Appliance Repairs is saving thousands of appliances from becoming an environmental nuisance. The company repairs a wide range of different appliances including ovens, fridges, washing machines, dryers, coffee machines, dishwashers, and a range of electricals including mobile phones and laptops. It also offers a home repairs service that is flexible around the needs of its customers. 

A company spokesperson for Nationwide Appliance Repairs said: “The issue of environmental safety and pollution prevention is very close to our hearts as an organisation. As the need to tackle global warming and pollution grows increasingly urgent, we’re committed to letting the Australian people know about the benefits of recycling and repairing their appliances.”

Nationwide Appliance Repairs is also delighted to announce the expansion of its operations into Brisbane. Now, the company offers speedy and efficient service throughout metropolitan areas and a number of regional areas including the greater cities of Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

The company spokesperson continued: “We’re really excited to announce the expansion of our operations. The more people we can reach, the more old appliances can be saved from the trash heap.”
